Fresh Pomegranate Juice Recipe / How to Make Anardana Powder at Home



You must be making pomegranate juices at home, but i am sure, you must been discarding the squeezed leftover precious seeds from it. I have been to untill i read a amazing tip in a magazine. 

Anardana Powder / Dried Pomegranate, it is such a amazing ingredient which is used in many recipes from chicken curry to aloo dishes. But i have never made any of them. Because i was unable to get my hands on them in my place. But few months back i read this great tip from a magazine of making your own homemade anardana. It is so simple, whenever you make a batch of pomegranate juice, just reserve the seeds, dry it up and powder it. Thats it. It is like two recipes in one and you are using ever bit of the penny you spend in those pomegranate. So i thought of sharing it with you all.

  5. Why should we add sugar or honey ? Pomegranates are delicious without them. In fact you may add lemon juice or a bit of sea salt to make them tastier and maintain the nutrient too.
